We are often asked ‘who invented scampi’ and the truth is us Brits have been enjoying a version of this dish since the 1700s. The first time a scampi recipe was written down was by Hannah Glasse, England’s first ever renowned domestic Goddess, the Georgian version of Nigella Lawson.
All our products are actually made right here in Whitby. We catch our beautiful British scampi off the coast of the British Isles and we responsibly source other seafood from locations around the world. Not to brag, but we’ve even won a few Great Taste awards...
Scampi – or langoustines, if you want to be all lar-dee-dar about it – are actually little lobsters. The scientific name is Nephrops Norvegicus, but you can sling your hook if you think we’re printing that on every packet.
We catch langoustines, like small lobsters (fancy, we know), from the seas of the British Isles.
We take the langoustines to our factory in Whitby where we fry them in a crispy crumb, using our safely-guarded family recipe.
We pack up our delicious breaded morsels and send them off, with a tear in our eyes like proud parents, to your local supermarkets and food service businesses.
